Chris Murphy (Full name- Christopher Scott Murphy) is an American politician serving as the junior United States Senator from Connecticut since 2013. Murphy was born on August 3, 1973, in White Plains, New York, U.S. He is a member of the Democratic Party and previously served in the United States House of Representatives.

Murphy represented Connecticut’s 5th congressional district from 2007 to 2013. Murphy was a member of both chambers of the Connecticut General Assembly, serving two terms each. First, in the Connecticut House of Representatives (1999–2003) and then the Connecticut Senate (2003–07), before being elected to Congress.

In 2012, after long-time incumbent Joe Lieberman announced in January 2011 that he would retire from politics rather than seeking a fifth term in office, Chris Murphy ran for the U.S. Senate. In the Democratic primary, he defeated former Connecticut secretary of state Susan Bysiewicz and subsequently defeated Republican candidate Linda McMahon for the open seat in the general election. Murphy was the youngest Senator of the 113th Congress aged 39 at the time. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, later surpassed Murphy as the youngest incumbent Senator elected at age 37, two years later.

On January 20, 2011, Chris Murphy announced that he would run for the Senate seat held by Joe Lieberman. The latter was retiring in the face of a very low approval rate. In mid-July, it was announced that a group spearheaded by a state Capitol lobbyist was forming a Super PAC for his campaign. The Super PAC hoped to raise $1 million to combat a possible opponent.

Murphy defeated Susan Bysiewicz, former Connecticut Secretary of State, in the Democratic primary and defeated Republican candidate Linda McMahon in the general election. Chris Murphy was left “on the defensive virtually nonstop” and struggling to respond after McMahon’s negative ads. This prompted the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee to send additional staff and money to Murphy to help with his campaign, saying they are “100 percent behind [him].”

Among the issues raised was Chase Home Finance sued for foreclosure against Murphy, whose campaign initially responded by claiming that Murphy had missed “a couple of mortgage payments.” Murphy claimed that until legal proceedings started, he did not know he was in default. In 2008, Murphy received a loan at the rate of 4.99% from Webster Bank to consolidate his previous mortgages. Chris Murphy was serving on the House Financial Services Committee at the time of this loan.

Murphy’s opponent McMahon accused him of receiving what she called “special interest loans,” and called on Murphy to release his financial records. Bank officials and outside experts claim there was nothing improper about the loans made to Murphy.

Murphy defeated McMahon on November 6, with 55% of the vote, winning every county except Litchfield County. It was the most expensive political race in Connecticut history at the time, and one of the most expensive Senate races in 2012.

Chris Murphy 2020

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., won’t be a candidate for president in 2020. The Democrat from Connecticut had been considered a possible contender in what is likely to be a crowded primary for his party. “Let me be 100% clear,” Murphy tweeted. “I’m not running in 2020. I love the job I have now.”

Murphy challenged 14-year incumbent Republican State Representative Angelo Fusco in 1998 at the age of 25. He was endorsed by the six largest labor unions in the state. The CT Employees Independent Union endorsed Murphy, the first time the union endorsed Fusco’s opponent. Fusco described himself as a union member, an environmentalist, and a moderate but Chris Murphy defeated Fusco 55%-45%. He won re-election to a second term in 2000, defeating Barbara Morelli 68%-32%.

Chris Murphy Net Worth

Murphy had an estimated net worth of negative $0.7 million as of 2018. This is according to the Wealth of Congress Study by Roll Call, which ranks members of the 115th Congress by estimated net worth. Richard Blumenthal is the 9th richest member of Congress, worth $70 million, while Murphy comes in at No. 525. The study’s authors say that some elected officials show a negative net worth because financial disclosure reports don’t require elected officials to report certain assets.
